    RWB are organising a Formula Ultimate league which is an "as close as we can get" recreation of the F1 2017 season. In our eyes the F-Ultimate car in AMS is the best sim F1 car we've ever driven and want to give it some serious track time.

    You can sign up HERE

    20 rounds on 20 tracks using the actual F1 track on any given round if it exists in AMS and replacing the ones we can't get with alternatives. Races will run every 2nd week so the league will run for 40 weeks in total.

    To make such a long league manageable for participants you will only score points for 15 of the races. You can race all 20 races but would drop the points for your worst 5 races or simply miss 5 races and it won't affect your F-Ultimate title hopes. We hope that this will allow more people to participate.

    The points system won't follow F1 as we use a system that helps keep the points spread lower and makes points available in each position.

    Full details are available HERE and the track running order is below along with headline info. All times UK.

    Round 1 - Albert Park - 57 laps - 2nd September
    Round 2 - Autopolis - 65 laps - 16th September
    Round 3 - Road America - 46 laps - 30th September
    Round 4 - Jerez Classic - 68 laps - 14th October
    Round 5 - Barcelona Modern - 66 laps - 28th October
    Round 6 - Imola 2016 - 62 laps - 11th November
    Round 7 - Montreal 2017 - 70 laps - 25th November
    Round 8 - Baku Azerbaijan - 51 laps - 9th December
    Round 9 - Spielberg 2017 - 71 laps - 6th January
    Round 10 - Silverstone Full - 52 laps - 20th January
    Round 11 - Jacarapagua - 60 laps - 3rd February
    Round 12 - Spa - 43 laps - 17th February
    Round 13 - Monza - 52 laps - 3rd March

    Hi - I've made up a track and skins pack for the league if anyone wants it. Can't link here as I've re-packaged someone else's mods but get in touch and I'll get it over to you.

    Cheers.

    Hi,

    The F-Ultimate league is ready and good to go! 14 people have signed up and I continue to try and get a few more places filled. If you know anyone might fancy it please let them know.

    Lap times on the RWB LiveRacers page show it's going to be a competitive season so roll on the first race!

    Practice is ramping up as the season starts soon and if you've not already then please pop onto the RWB Formula Ultimate server soon to make sure you're good to go.

    Thanks,
    Rodders.

    League starts this Saturday. 15 people are signed up and late signups still welcome for the last few places.

    Check how you shape up so far against the competition HERE

    See you on Saturday and best of luck.

    18 people signed up in the end so we are good to go for a great opening race on Saturday and hopefully another great 19 races after! Not too late to sign up either with 4 places left

    I think there was a little confusion with the practice night last night but those that were there for the test races learned a lot and I thoroughly recommend getting some short race practice, especially to experience the loss of downforce when following someone - it's brutal.

    I think this first race is going to be a big learning curve for many of us and that'll sure make it interesting. See you on track Saturday - 9pm (UK) remember, a bit earlier than our normal start time!

    PS - I am thinking about extending qualy to 20 mins with a 10 min warmup to allow time for us to transition from hotlap/low fuel mode to race mode and hopefully make for a tidier race.

    Great first race at the weekend and I think everyone learned a lot about running a full length F1 race in these bad boys! Tough as hell but everyone seemed to have a story after it so it certainly gave us all an experience :)

    Next track is Autopolis with lots of long high speed bends to contrast with the tight chicanes of Melbourne from the first race. Tyre's get destroyed here and should make strategy a big part of the race with all tyre compounds available to choose from.

    The recent patch having fixed the problem of not being able to tell what tyre compound your opponents are using means we can now implement a 2 compound use per race system into the league. Still thinking the practicalities of enforcing it and will confirm ASAP if it makes it into the next race.

    20 are signed up but the last 2 places are still up for grabs as you only score points from 15 of the 20 races so if you fancy joining in, get in touch ;)

    Cheers.

    Hi - we will be piloting the use of 2 different tyre compounds for the race this weekend at Autopolis as mentioned previously.

    Use any compounds available, just make sure and use at least 2 different ones during the race.

    If it works out we will keep this change in for the remainder of the league.

    Oh and all 22 driver slots are now filled!

    So the Road America race on 30th was postponed as only 6 people turned up for it even though only 4 or 5 people said they couldn't make it. Project Cars 2 effect has a lot to do with it I reckon but is it a short term issue or is the F-Ult league bleeding out?

    The Road America race will be re-scheduled to 14th October and if less than 10 people attend, the league will be cancelled.

    Looking relatively promising to get enough for the re-run of this race. Hope to see you there and if you signed up and can't make it or have lost interest in the league please let me know.

    Cheers - Rodders.
